3 killed, several injured in serious drunk driving accident

Driving under the influence is never a good idea, and it often results in collisions that leave families without their loved ones. When a driver chooses to be reckless and get behind the wheel drunk or under the influence of drugs, that person is putting him or herself and others at risk. If he or she causes harm, he or she should be held accountable, and you should be able to recoup your expenses and seek compensation.

Are helmets helpful when motorcyclists are in collisions?

Motorcycle helmets are sometimes a point of contention. Some people believe they should be able to ride a motorcycle without them, while others think it's necessary. In a crash, a motorcycle helmet could potentially save your life, but that doesn't mean that if you aren't wearing one that the other person wasn't negligent or driving dangerously. In cases where you're hurt, you may be compensated regardless of your helmet safety as long as someone else was at fault.

Traffic Fatalities Rising

According to the National Safety Council traffic related fatalities that occurred between January and June of 2016 increased nine percent from the prior year during that period of time. The Council released estimates stating that 19,100 people were killed in the U.S. from January to the end of June. It is also estimated that approximately 2.2 million people were also seriously injured during that same time period.

Suicidal man causes serious collision on Highway 280

Sometimes people make bad choices that impact the people around them without considering the implications. For instance, if a driver gets behind the wheel while drunk, he or she might not be thinking about what would happen if he gets into an accident. The same is true in this case involving a man who must have been depressed at the time of the accident.

Workers' compensation denied? You can appeal your case

If your workers' compensation claim was denied, you may think you can't do anything about it. That's not true; in fact, you can appeal the denial and work with your attorney to have your claim approved and paid to you from the date of injury. You shouldn't lose any income as a result of a bad review of your case.
